North website said Cunners has a corked thigh, so nothing too serious. I imagine the plan was to give him JLT2, but he then got the corkie this week which scuppered that plan.So Anderson and Garner have actually been injured? J Mac injury is ******. Our backline is toast, not a good start
Cunnington is Definitley injured too why the **** would you have him miss 2 games of JLT, we’d be stupid to not get some game time into him
I fear Jacobs is kinda done
Time for everyone else to step up but we are starting this year already looking a hospital room lol come on footy gods be nice!
Cunners is a grizzled old veteren. He's the last bloke I'd be concerned about. If he missed 4 during the season, he'd slot back in seemlessly. I suspect he'll do the same in Rd1.North website said Cunners has a corked thigh, so nothing too serious.

And we knew Anderson injured his hammy in the intraclub. I'm not sure why that's a surprise.
Otherwise, I work on the assumption that Garner and Jacobs aren't goign to play, and if they do it's a bonus.
Yea there's no use losing sleep over cunners. When was the last time Garner got through a whole game though?Cunners is a grizzled old veteren. He's the last bloke I'd be concerned about. If he missed 4 during the season, he'd slot back in seemlessly. I suspect he'll do the same in Rd1.

With Anderson finally getting some continuation in his football/body. Am I the only one to think, did he really need to bulk up over the summer and put pressure on the already suspect hammies?Jacobs is contracted for 2020 I think. Assuming at the time he signed, we thought we got to the bottom of his dizziness issue, and he's ready to go. Now it appears nobody at the club has any concrete idea what's going on, or else we'd hear about it by now. Pretty concerning.
Anderson has a bit of a history of hamstrings, not as bad as Garner's history, but still worrying enough. He missed some games with hamstrings pretty much every year he's been with us, and we know he only started to play well once he felt confident in his body. Arguably, that wasn't quite the case after the bye last year when he returned from the latest hammy, and probably fair to say he wasn't quite as good as his early season form. So he is another one with question marks over the long term.
Feels like we are starting the season with too many question marks over the fitness of a number of blokes, much more than we would have hoped for.
That's usually not a great sigh.
Of course he should have as Kangatech told him exactly what to do. With out Kangatech he would have ripped the whole leg off.
He is coming off an ACL. Would have thought he would be no chance playing round 1.I'm not surprised Watson has been overlooked given the circumstances.
Developmentally he is behind Larkey and Wood, therefore behind both of them in the pecking order. Taking that into account, the uncertainty of a clear standout and Round 1 just around the corner, they need a definitive call now.
If he has been moved forward to bolster our shaky Key Forward options then that's a positive for me, but he's going to be learning the ropes in the magoos for a while.
Generally I believe if it ain't broke don't change it. Sometimes the individual needs to find a rhythm and go with what works. Clearly last year did. This year...not so much. A lot of variables at play so I won't throw too many stones. But if he goes back to pre-2018 luck I might throw more than stones...
